    Help please

    I found some pills in my 17 yo brothers room. The lable said hydrocodo 10/325. it had my aunts name on it, so i think he stole it from her cos i know she wouldnt give them to him. i asked him and he said he likes the feel of them, they give him energy. I told my aunt (Moms sister) and she told my mom (so he wouldnt know it was me). She said she knew it was him who took them. She said ther was less than the 50 when he took them and only 10 when i found them. Don't know if he's addicted or not, but scares me he could take 2 many.

    I know he smoked weed b4, but i don't think all the time tho.

    He got in tons of trouble for it. I feel bad but i don't think he takes them anymore. My Dad was really mad. Never tried them, but i had a half a extacy once. Weird feeling and very horny...kinda creepy..

    Pollekjames,

    The first thing you can do is you can attend Alateen meetings, which is a group of teenagers that have parents that are drug addicts and alcoholics. It's a support group so everyone can vent and talk about their parent and siblings and know that they are not alone. That link will take you to the official site so you can find meetings near you. Al-Anon For you, contact The University Church of Christ at 1555 E University Ave in Las Cruces. Their meetings are on Tuesdays at 7:30pm. I'm sure they'll be able to put you in touch with someone who can help you and your 17-yo brother. Good luck.

    Here's some Important things to remember:

    1.) This is not your fault if your parents or brother are addicted to drugs. They just feel into it and it just takes time like everything else to stop. There are many ways to stop, but the important thing is, is that you're supportive. As long as they're not abusing you in any way, then just be there for them. So they can sooner or later find the help they need.

    2.) Don't be an enabler. When someone you know or a parent is addicted to any substance do not condone it by supporting their habit with money, or giving it to them. Or letting them use around you. As they will only continue to take advantage until the supply is gone. Then move on to something else. Like a leech.

    3.) If you, yourself are addicted to drugs, please do not be scared to ask for help as you are not alone and you don't have to go through this without support. Getting help and admitting you have a problem is the first step.

    4.)There is always hope, but until they get that help or they are taking the initiative, there is not much you can do. There are detox programs at hospitals. There are rehab centers to go to. They have to be willing to go the length to stop. You cannot force them.


    Good luck.

    Let us know what happened & if we can help you in any way.

    Also, when your parents or someone else is ready to get sober they can go to meetings called Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous.

    When they reach their “bottom” as they like to call it. What those meetings are, is a fellowship of men and woman who share their experience strength and hope with each other so they may solver their common problems and help others who suffer from addictions.
